Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have solution, hornet, black wings, G2 predator for aggressive shoes, and this one is by far my favorite. Snug fit, i wear size 8.5 in these, and 9 street shoes, super tight, but surprisingly very comfortable, the only set back is the heel doesn't fit me too well and i have an air pocket, but no 5.10 heels ever fit me well.
Rubber is supper soft and sensitive, so soft that i feel comfortable climbing slab in these (you read that right, slab).
Love the color. definitely works best for over hanging routes, but i wear these for any climb, even multi-pitches. This is the perfect shoes for me, it's the tits.

Fit: Runs small

run really small lol
i picked this up at the local climbing shop, i wear size 8.5 i miura and wear this in 9.5 (street size 8.5)!!!!!!! WOW lol
STICKS TO EVERYTHING, no matter what body positions im in weather it's edging or smearing... it perform as well as my miura, the only different is the sensitivity, really sensitive, you can tell how much longer you have to stand on something before you fall off.
only down side is heel cup way too deep, im guessing having it at a size 9.5 is probably why, but i dont think i can fit 8.5 so i guess something gotta give.
definitely not a starter's shoes, but sticks like glue.
Recommended, thump up XP

i wear 41.5 on with miura lace, it's definitely a little loose after stretches, and causing problems with my heel hook if i super crank on it. I'm sending my miura in for a resole and want to get these for my next pair of shoes, i want performance this time and willing to get a tight fit on it, what size do you think i should get in these?

these are my favorite climbing shoes ever, im currently climbing 5.12 and never ever have any problems standing on anything with these, accept for this one time my sloppy foot slipped off a frickin ledge lol.
comeparing to any other shoes i've try on before, these are by far the best to climb on, stick to basically anything and do easy on my feet, i could probally size them atleast another size smaller but at the time they didnt have my size, with that being said, i didn't need a super tight pair of these to get the sensitivities, and it sticking to any hold.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

come with the belt so you dont need harness or pants with the belt thing to have this on your back.
a chalk bag is a chalk bag, function like one, carry chalk so yeah nothing more or less, dont carry water or gun but would be a great place to hide cocaine, other than that,its a chalk bag.
Work great, great buy, matchcolor with my carabiner, and my harness, and my 5.10 moccasym.
all red, i take climbing in blood :)

AWESOME!!
I wore them for the first 5 weeks, work like a champ(i climb for two months straight with regular shoes), then it got this horrible smell, so bad that i have to stop going to my bouldering gym and start going to my sport climbing places and use their shoes. However after i got really into climbing, i got over the idea of the smell, and the shoes work great. have them for 4 months now, currently on v6 and doing fine with it, still very durable while my partner in climb own a pair of mad rock and he climb as much as i do have holes in the front of it, im guessing that these are very durable.
i wear size 8.5-9 street shoes, and chooses size 8, break in was terrible, hurt so much, now it still hurt and i cant always keep them on so when i take them off for air around the gym, the terrible smell "unleashed the cage".
for some reason, even tho it supper hurt and tight, when i try heel hooks, i fell a little air in between my heel and the shoes, so i dont think my heel fit in them.
i dont let that set me back, great shoes over all, just need better fitting and hopefully the smell wont "unleash the cage" on you
